Finally saw it tonight and really enjoyed it, but perhaps not as much as I could have. It had so many great characters in it, I wouldn't have minded another 15 minutes running time to actually get to know them better. Even the title character seemed to still be a stranger by the end of the film. We only really knew him through his narration, otherwise he seemed to be a bit stoneface althroughout.
Cinematography was excellent, although the editing of some very gorgeous and precious shots seemed to come and go way too quickly. I'm speaking mostly of the same shots used in the trailer (Pitt on the motorcycle, the rocket launch, etc.). I did especially like the Tarsem sequences shot in India.
Also, I noticed the same issue I had noticed with "Zodiac" where the "toe" seemed just a little high with very grey looking blacks. It's most likely an issue with the print stock, but to have seen it in both films, I can only assume it could be an issue with the Viper when in combination with a certain print stock. Thoughts?
